Michael Gayed, CFA

Co-Portfolio Manager and Chief Investment Strategist

Michael A. Gayed co-authored three award-winning papers in 2014 and 2016, and also won the 2015 Founders Award for his paper documenting how Lumber and Gold can be used as signals for managing investment portfolios. This eye-opening paper focuses on the predictive power of two seemingly unrelated commodities which provide important information on the economic cycle, and risk-seeking behavior in various assets. His work has important implications for both asset allocators and active managers.
